Michelle O'Neil 36 year old singer/songwriter from Waterford, MI has been singing since she was 22mo. old. She took vocal lessons from Roberta Carter from ages 6-13. Michelle started songwriting and taught herself how to play the guitar as a young teen. Her early performing experiences were in church. Michelle later took her songs to coffee houses and open mic nights.

After highschool Michelle moved to Saginaw & began performing at local restaurants & bars.

Michelle is the proud mother of two, Lillian 10 and Miles 8. She recently released her first full album HAPPINESS IS REAL, a compilation of songs written during her journey through bipolar disorder in hopes it would inspire others as they face their own challenges. Michelle shares her life and often collaborates with Cody Busch who also plays guitar on the album. Additionally, Michelle is the other half of the cover duo, Mel & Michelle with Melissa Curry.

LoraDale is a mother of 4, wife, business owner, and musician. She has been performing and writing music for over 20 years, but has been surrounded by the art since day one. Lora has directed musicals for Thumb Area Community Theater (TAC’T) and music camps at Bay Shore Camp over the past 10 years, and teaches private music lessons in her home. There is nothing she loves more than sharing the power of music with others. Even with a busy household to manage, Lora makes music an everyday part of life for her family, and hopes a strong legacy is being built there as it was in her own childhood.

Lora released an EP “Rise Girl” in 2019 and continued on to make a full album “Pieces” that dropped January 1st of this year. She was a featured vocalist in the Paul McCartney 80th Birthday Show in Bay City last June, and has more exciting shows in the near future. Her biggest motivation is the opportunity to share hope through her music and let her listeners know that they are not alone.
